ABAM 3D Archery Team Fundraising Raffle

Help Support the ABAM 3D Provincial Team Program

The ABAM 3D Provincial Team Program has been reshaped in 2019 to a multi-tier program to help support all levels of competitive shooters interested in joining Team Manitoba. Team Leader Ed Wilson and the 3D Committee have worked hard to redevelop the program to ensure Manitoba produces nationally competitive shooters across all categories. The new team program includes travel to events outside of Manitoba with financial support from Sport Manitoba and the ABAM. In order to ensure the program can assist a growing team, volunteers have initiated a fundraising campaign in the form of a raffle. The raffle prizes to be won include three VISA Gift Cards in the amounts of $2500, $1000, and $500.

The ABAM is proud to announce the launch of our Compound specific MYGOLD Program (Manitoba Youth Games & Olympic Long-term Development), geared toward compound athletes of the intermediate to advance levels. The program provides the tools and coaching to take archers from the advanced lessons and club competition stage to the level necessary to meet criteria for Manitoba Games, Canada Games and our Provincial Team Program.

The coaches leading the program are Brady Klassen and Kelly Taylor, both experienced archers trained at the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) level of “Competition Development”. Additionally, both coaches have recently trained under National Youth Team Coach Duncan Crawford at the ABAM Canada Winter Games Training Camp. In addition to coach training and experience under the eye of Canada’s top level coaches, both Kelly and Brady have traveled out of Province to train under U.S. Professional Coach George “griv” Ryals IV.

Kelly, father to a local Team Manitoba and Team Canada archer,  has competed at events around North America, in addition to having led athletes to the Manitoba Games in 2018. Brady Klassen is a current Provincial Team Member, National Champion and represented Canada at the 2017 World Archery Youth Championships in Argentina. Together Kelly and Brady bring a wide range of experience in Archery from coaching at the club level to travelling to international events.

Join the 2019/2020 ABAM Provincial Target Team

Join the 2019/2020 ABAM Provincial Target Team

The Athlete Development Committee with guidance from our new Provincial Head Coach Avril Hatherell, is pleased to publish the 2019/2020 Manitoba Provincial Target Team Program Documents for the coming year. The program selection criteria has been modified in 2019 to ensure we are delivering a top quality, coach led provincial high performance program that is more closely aligned with Archery Canada’s national team selection policies.

In 2019/2020 the program selection criteria has been designed to be more inclusive of development level athletes. The program will offer a high quality local training environment to ensure athlete progression, as well as increase involvement across both equipment disciplines and genders.

The basis of team selection is a score criteria bench mark, which must be met within the stated qualifying period, this bench mark is refereed to in the document as “The Minimum Qualifying Scores” or “MQS” . The MQS, as outlined in the team selection document have been changed to reflect 3rd place average qualification score from the past five (5) national championships for Elite Squad qualification, and 85% of that score for Development Squad qualification.

As the program moves to build a larger base of athlete’s training and competing in Manitoba, the organization acknowledges the value in investing in athletes to compete out of province. The team selection document outlines how athletes in the program are eligible to attain travel funding based on meeting score criteria (objective) and by adhering to the program, as dictated by the coach (subjective – practice & strength training attendance, adherence to personal yearly training plan (YTP), behavior and future potential).

As membership in the program does not guarantee athlete travel support funds, the organization will publish event specific team funding documents (addendum to the selection document), which will outline more specific criteria as to how travel funds can be earned. The organization will ensure that event specific criteria documents are communicated to the athletes in a clear and timely fashion. It is a program priority that athletes have a clear understanding of the criteria and their standing on the team.

Athlete funding selections will be by recommendation from the head coach, who will submit a report outlining the selection and funding recommendations to a group of unbiased Athlete Development Committee members.

Selection by the coach will be based on a combination of objective and subjective criteria as outlined in the 2019/2020 Team Selection Criteria, as well as any additional event specific criteria as published. Our organization believes this process will ensure we are sending athletes that will most likely offer return on investment, whether the event goal be a development opportunity or to win medals.

The 2019 – 2020 ABAM Provincial Team Documents are now available below:

Archery Canada is seeking a Canbow Redevelopment Project Leader

 

From Archery Canada Website www.archerycanada.ca

Archery Canada is seeking to contract a project manager who will form and lead a small working group of program experts to refresh, develop and relaunch the Canbow program to ensure its relevance in the development of young archers across Canada.

Project Overview

The Canbow program (the “Program”) was first published in 1994 for indoor and outdoor target archery. In 2001 it was updated to introduce a program for 3D archery, a growing discipline in Canada. The Program was developed to provide archers with the necessary skills to progress in the sport, and to be the entry pathway for young archers as they develop skills and techniques of shooting a bow. There has been a decline in the purchase of the Program resources in recent years and the program materials may be outdated. Some clubs have taken it upon themselves to alter the program in either its content or its rewards. In order for the program to fulfill its purpose it will need to be reviewed, refreshed and modernized for the youth of today. The review and redevelopment of the Program will ensure it is current, aligns to the long term athlete development model, and fulfills its purpose as an entry pathway for archers of all ages.
